Every year, the K.C. Chiefs will play through a different division from the opposing conference and this year the NFC East is on tap. For everyone in the AFC West, that’s good news considering how average the teams in the NFC East has been in the last couple years and no one is really standing out all that strong this season—and that comes after the Washington Football Team won the division with a losing record in 2020.
So far, the Chiefs have taken care of the Philadelphia Eagles as of Week 4 and now face the WFT in Week 6. The New York Giants and Dallas Cowboys are still to come, but the idea of the Chiefs blowing through the whole division makes more sense than any other outcome.
The reason to take the Football Team seriously would be for its incredible defense, especially a stout defensive front seven, but they have not lived up to expectations so far this season. When you add an underperforming defense with a below average offense, it’s not hard to see why we’re pretty bullish on the Chiefs this week.

Chiefs vs WFT Prediction Week 6
Washington is beating the teams they should so far in 2021 and losing to those they should as well. That sort of logic puts them in line for another loss to a Kansas City Chiefs team that needs to avoid any real random tripwires in non-conference games like this. Sweeping the NFC East should be the expectation going forward which includes taking care of the Washington Football Team (and hoping that this isn’t the week that Chase Young, Matt Ioannidis, and company wake up and make up for lost time.
Prediction: Chiefs 33, WFT 20
